I just went to sent my status message in League of Legends to "Oh Bilbo" and i got a message that said "The status contains one or more offensive words. Please remove the offensive words and retry."

Does Riot hate all hobbits? Or just Bilbo?

Maybe there is a slang term for Bilbo that I am just too un-hip to know. If so could someone please enlighten me? I don't wanna end up having someone call me a Bilbo in public and not be able to react accordingly.

If someone calls you Bilbo, just cut off their ring finger to be safe.

My first thought as well, but I can't believe they'd filter Bilbo for that.

Kassadin is filtered for having ass in it so i wouldn't be surprised. Open up the language filters in your game folders and behold the fail.

Wow, I just learned so many new curse words. Some of those are just hilariously bizarre.

You have to change two letters to change that into anything that can be inserted safely into anything. "Duck" is closer to an offensive word than "Bilbo".

That being said, I am in favor of "Bilbo" being a banned word. Not because it is too close to "*****", but because I find Hobbits disgusting.
